Happiest Birthday

I meant to post an entry earlier today in honor of my daughter's eleventh birthday, but our morning got pretty hectic. I had to run to Krispy Kreme Donuts, so she could bring some to share with her classmates that I didn't have time to sit down and post. Oh well, we just returned from eating out. She picked Applebee's, so although I wanted to go to Elephant Bar... it's not my birthday. I am only the mom who pays for the bill. Haha. I can't believe my baby girl is now eleven! She is still my baby and will always be.

I would like to share a special card I made the other night. I am feeling much better. I went back to my doctor and she told me I have not outgrown my "childhood" asthma, I still have it and now it's called "adult" asthma, how about that? The medications are clearly helping and it is so good to be able to breathe and slowly be my bubbly self again. Enough of sick talk, here is the card that cheered me up.
